I am a Researcher, Lecturer and Docent in Political Science at the Department of Government, Uppsala University, where I have worked since 2012. I am also Docent at the University of Jyväskylä, from where I received my PhD in 2011. In 2018-19, I am Visiting Research Fellow at the "Engaging Vulnerability" project at Uppsala (Fall 2018), and at the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, Princeton University (Spring 2019). In Uppsala, I work on two projects, "Democratic Self-defense: The social model" (MM Wallenberg Foundation) and "Contributivism" (Swedish Research Council), from 2019 until 2023.
My broader research interests are in democratic theory, constitutional law, electoral politics, parliamentary rhetoric and conceptual history. I have authored The History of Compulsory Voting in Europe (Routledge 2015) and co-edited Militant Democracy and its Critics (with Alex Kirshner, Edinburgh University Press 2019) Equal Representation (with Lisa Hill, CRISPP Special issue 19, 3, 2016) and Rhetoric, Politics and Conceptual Change (with Kari Palonen, 2011). My articles have appeared or are forthcoming in journals such as History of Political Thought, Redescriptions, Political Studies, Constellations and Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy, along with many book chapters and public commentaries. Since 2016, I am co-editor of Redescriptions: Political Thought, Conceptual History and Feminist Theory.
I have taught courses in democratic theory, political ideologies, comparative politics, and political theory both at undergraduate and postgraduate level in Uppsala and Jyväskylä, and have been a visiting lecturer in Rome, Helsinki, Berlin and Athens. During 2017-20, I will be teaching Political Ideologies at the Hellenic Open University (BA in European Culture Studies).
